Got a beauty emergency? Before you rush out to the supermarket in a disguise, check your cupboards — you may already have everything you need for an amazing fix, right in the comfort of your own home. Here are three insanely easy and wildly effective hacks for solving those all-too-common crises that always seem to strike when you’re right in the middle of getting ready for a big night out.
Tame Frizzy Hair With Lotion
Got a mane that won’t be tamed? On those humid days where frizz is inevitable, put down the pomades, gels, and hairsprays, and pick up your regular body lotion instead. After all, your hair is made up of the same types of proteins as your skin and craves moisture in the same kind of way. Start with a dime-sized amount smoothed from root to tip, and add more as needed.
Calm Puffy Eyes With Cold Spoons
Sometimes life gets in the way. Maybe the kids have got you waking up at the crack of dawn, or maybe you had a little too much fun out on the town last night. Either way, there’s a simple fix for easing puffy eyes: Put two metal spoons in your freezer for at least one hour, and then rest them over your eyes for just a minute or two. The swelling will go down and you’ll look and feel fresh as a daisy.
Quench Dry Skin With Olive Oil
Long winters in cold climates can do a number on your skin. When your elbows start soaking in regular lotion faster than a sponge but still feel rough and dry, it’s time to pull out the big guns. Use a light rubbing of olive oil over your skin for amazing softness. If you don’t like the smell, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or cut it with your regular lotion.
You don’t need to spend a lot to look great! Use these DIY hacks for everyday beauty that works.
